NBA DFS Top Value Plays for Sunday01/29/23
Dillon Brooks – A Valuable Option for Your NBA DFS Lineup on DraftKings
For those looking for a solid value play in their NBA DFS lineup tonight on DraftKings, Dillon Brooks should not be overlooked. Despite his tendency to be an inconsistent player, Brooks is still taking on a significant role for the Memphis Grizzlies, averaging 15.2 shots per game in 31 minutes of play. This level of usage is typically seen from players priced at $7K, but Brooks is currently priced at just $4900.
During a 17-game stretch earlier in the season when teammate Kyle Anderson was out, Brooks was able to average 19.6 points, 4.0 rebounds, and 3.3 assists, resulting in an average of 32 fantasy points per game. The Pacers, Brooks’ opponents for tonight, have a tendency to allow the most fantasy points to opposing small forwards.
While Brooks may be in a bit of a shooting slump at the moment, his low salary is too good of a value to pass up. In the previous meeting between these two teams, Brooks did not play, providing an added element of surprise for the Pacers’ defense to deal with.
With the Grizzlies facing a crucial moment in their season, Brooks could be a key player in stepping up. Although he may not always be a high scorer, Brooks’ ability to take over a game and produce 25-30 fantasy points at his low salary make him a valuable option for your NBA DFS lineup tonight. On Friday, he played 37 minutes for the Grizzlies, taking 17 shots, but finishing the day with a low 26 DraftKings fantasy points due to a 2-for-10 performance from beyond the arc. If his three-pointers are on target tonight, Brooks could be a great addition to your optimal lineup. Even if they’re not, he likely won’t harm your lineup too much on this small slate.
Caris LeVert: The Potential Game-Changer
Caris LeVert is one of the most exciting players in the NBA right now, and with good reason. Despite his recent struggles in his last game, where he missed 11 of his 12 shots, he still managed to contribute 9 assists in 38 minutes of play. As a result of his growing importance to the team, especially with the absence of Mitchell, LeVert is expected to be a valuable asset in the lineup.
Since taking on a larger role as a starter, Caris has shown his true potential, boasting an average of over 30 fantasy points per game. This is a significant increase from his 19-point average as a reserve, and he is likely to continue this trend against the Clippers. As long as he remains in the lineup for 35+ minutes and takes a minimum of 10 shots, LeVert is a great investment, especially at his current price point of $5500 on both DraftKings and FanDuel.

Terance Mann has secured a starting position with the Clippers, and his recent play demonstrates his versatility. In Saturday’s game, he recorded 7 rebounds, 6 assists, and 2 blocks across 35 minutes, despite making just one shot. Over the past 10 games, Mann is averaging 23 DK points per game in 30 minutes of play, which is impressive for a $4K player. With the possibility of Paul George, Kawhi Leonard, and Nicolas Batum sitting out during the second half of the back-to-back set, Mann’s opportunities could increase further.
Reggie Jackson could potentially start for the Clippers, but his playing time decreased when Leonard returned. In the last three games, Jackson has averaged 25.3 DKFP in 21.3 MPG with a 26.9% usage rate. The Clippers’ lineup will differ greatly from Saturday’s game, making Jackson a potential value pick.
Robert Covington did not travel with the Clippers to Atlanta on Saturday and is set to play against the Cavs in the back-to-back set. Despite averaging under 20 MPG over the past 11 games, Covington has exceeded 5.5x his value 8 times, with an average return of 7.6x in those games. This is a three-game slate, so finding value will require a lower bar, but Covington offers potential regardless.
With Adams ruled out, Clarke is expected to start at center and dominate in this expanded opportunity. In his first two starts, he’s already recorded at least 33 fantasy points in each. His 30-minute average and dominant paint play, along with a soft Pacers defense surrendering the fourth-most fantasy points to opposing centers, make Clarke a strong play.
His 68.9% True Shooting Percentage and consistent production (22 DK points per game in fewer than 20 minutes) adds to his appeal. Indiana’s 26th ranked 113.3 Defensive Efficiency Rating and fast-paced 104.3 pace only further boost Clarke’s potential. Expect him to be a top value pick at an affordable price.
We hope these tips have helped you in finding the best value plays for your NBA DFS lineup tonight on DraftKings. Remember to consider factors such as player matchups, team trends, and recent performance when building your lineup. Good luck with your picks!
